Class V myosins are motor proteins with functions in vesicle transport, organelle segregation, and RNA localization. Although they have been extensively studied, only little is known about the regulation of their spatial distribution. Here we demonstrate that a GFP fusion protein of the budding yeast class V myosin Myo4p accumulates at the bud cortex and is(More)
The development of the endomembrane system was a major step in eukaryotic evolution. Membrane coats, which exhibit a unique arrangement of beta-propeller and alpha-helical repeat domains, play key roles in shaping eukaryotic membranes. Such proteins are likely to have been present in the ancestral eukaryote but cannot be detected in prokaryotes using(More)
Localization of messenger RNAs and local protein synthesis contribute to asymmetric protein distribution not only of cytoplasmic but also of membrane or secreted proteins. Since synthesis of the latter protein classes occurs at the rough endoplasmic reticulum (ER), mRNA localization and distribution of ER should be coordinated. However, this coordination is(More)
